How might CEERIAS support female caregivers logistically and emotionally to empower them to share their own stories and increase stroke awareness in their communities?
A sidekick that offers support tools and a social network to empower caregivers to pass their story on.
As part of the research, we conducted 13 ethnographic interviews with female caregivers and 9 stakeholder interviews with the CEERIAS staff.
Following an organized process of data integration & analysis, qualitative research findings were translated into insights that were then clustered into the key themes which informed our main design principles and opportunities.
